ntly unanswerable, while others, although
ideally subject to empirical demonstration, are so heavily mired in sentiment that no
amount of tugging is going to get them out. Only the naive think that "proof" proceeds in
the manner of the scientific ideal. "Proof" involves gathering information, however
dubious, which suits one's own biases, and suppressing that which threatens them.
Actually, "facts" are instruments designed for the support of one's biases. These facts may
actually be true, but truth is complex and elusive, and even seemingly contradictory facts
may be "true." Anyone who thinks of marijuana use as evil wishes to attribute "evil"
causes to it, as well as "evil" consequences ( especially ).
No one likes violence, crime, heroin addiction, or "psychological dependence," so
marijuana is charged with generating them. Actually, these are all code words. The
allegation that marijuana causes violence is code for "marijuana use is evil.
allegations have, of course, been retranslated into contemporary scientific metaphors,
because religious imagery does not speak with much practical authority today, but their
meaning is identical.
Consider the following quotes ( the emphasis is mine ):

Although cannabism does not lead to an addiction in the classic sense of
morphinism, the subjection to the drug is fairly serious.
To a considerable
extent, it decreases the social value of the individual and leads him to

inclination to develop psychotic phenomena, is greatly intensified by

Notice the transition; we think we know what addicting means, and we feel assured
that marijuana is not addicting. But we know that addicting is bad, and such labels are
useful for persuasion purposes. So, marijuana must be labeled addicting, making it bad.
We know that narcotics are bad, and that narcotic refers to an analgesic, a pain-killer.
defining marijuana as a narcotic, one quality of the narcotic is isolated out (its image in
the popular mind as evil), and its actual pharmacologic property ( pain-killing ), which
marijuana doesn't share, is ignored.
Thus, we have narcotic-evil-marijuana.

30 watts/s.f. Using GH nutes with fox farm and EJ Catalyst in both systems. Most plants in strain outgrew table

loose as could be. Ones in trays were more sativa and finished bout 6 feet and were more potent with
better-looking buds, though still loose. They are covered with resin. More light would have been a big plus and

signs of both Indica and Sativa heritage. Large, broad bladed leaves, but lighter green in color than typical

"Mother plants (J1 and J3) - Grow vigorously and bushy. J1 is the hardiest looking of the two females.
Father plants (J2 and J4) - Grow vigorously and bushy. J4 is the hardiest looking of the two males (surprisingly,
this J4 grew from a seed I'd characterize as a ""runt"", about half the size of his siblings' seeds). Unfortunately
all clones of J4 were lost and I have only a ""decent"" supply of pollen from his flowers.
Clones - Very quick to root (10 - 14 days) with a success rate of 90 to 100%. Several small, poorly rooted
clones eventually came around and flowered nicely. Rooting occurs independent of the method used; RW
cubes with pH 6 or 5.8, Rootone or not, seems to make little difference."
"Flowering - Once rooted, the RW cube is buried up to it's top in a 6 inch round pot of 50% perlite 50% Hyponex
Professional Soil Mix, fertilized initially with Miracle Grow 15-30-15 at 1/2 tsp. per gal of pH 6.5 water. Once
looking well at 12cm tall, flowering is begun with a 12hr light/dark cycle. During the first week they ""shoot"" up
30 to 50cm with large fan leaves but suddenly look over-fertilized (Miracle Grow has urea-based nitrogen) with
curling at the tips of the leaves. They respond virtually overnight to a good, thorough leaching with plain water,
then they take on a dark green color and start to ""bud out"" rather than get taller. After the first week of
flowering, feeding is switched to Shultz's Bloom 10-60-10 at 1/2 tsp. per gal of pH 6.5 water; I soak the pots
and wait a couple days until they get lightweight before the next good soaking. Flowers appear Sativa-like and
extremely resinous, except that they continue to get progressively fatter and denser, much heavier buds than
the Jack Herer itself does."
"I would guess that the father of the seeds was a skunk or similar strain, since the
calyx to leaf ratio is so high; the flowers just keep sprouting out in all directions from the bud with only tiny,
resin coated leaflets interspersed between flower clusters. The leaves, all but the fan leaves, are covered in
stalked resin glands from base to tip. Sample smoking of immature buds which were culled (tried to flower
them in RW cubes but they died) after two or three weeks of flowering proved to have a sweet, skunky taste
and produced a very ""happy"" high, not at all paranoia-inducing. The finished product should be excellent.
Currently, I have several healthy, rapidly budding clones that are in their third week of flowering and they may
well finish before their eighth week. The lowest four branches of one J1 clone were selectively pollinated using
the J4 male's pollen and should yield roughly 50 seeds. My hope is that these seeds will produce plants with a
great variety of fine characteristics. The outstanding gene pool should ensure that, inbreeding con

emotional identification with it and appreciation of it, was heightened. They could "get
into" the music better and became, in a sense, part of the music. About one quarter (23
percent) claimed that they could separate out the various instruments, sounds, and levels
of sound, better appreciating the elaborate interweaving of sounds occurring in a musical
composition. Some even likened listening high to having a built-in stereo set. The sounds
actually seemed physically separated; one respondent felt that he could hear the notes of
an organ bouncing off the ceiling, while the other sounds of the piece were off somewhere
else in the room. Related to this perception was the sensation that they could hear one
sound only, while all of the other sounds seemed subdued; there appeared to be some sort
of ability to concentrate selectively on a single instrument, tune, sound, or level. Ten

individuals, or 6 percent of the high music listeners, claimed that this was the first and
most dominant characteristic of listening to music while smoking marijuana. Seventeen
percent said merely that their hearing was more acute, that being high improved their
listening ability. And 6 percent mentioned the synesthesia phenomenon, claiming that
listening had a visual correspondent. They could see the music while listening to it.
Another of the more puzzling and intriguing products of the marijuana high that our
interviews tapped remains its impact on the subject's perception of the passage of time.
About a quarter of our respondents claimed that under the drug's influence they sensed
much more time had passed than actually had. Time, in other words, seems to move
extraordinarily slowly. Now, the positivistically inclined clinician will see this as a
"distortion." It might, however, be more fruitful to look at time in a more relativistic
sense. The division of the day into minutes and hours of standard length is only one of
many possible ways of looking at the passage of time. Time also has a subjective element,
a kind of organic flow. Under certain circumstances, a visceral grasp of time might
coincide with a mechanistic one where, in laboratory terms, the subject will be able to
judge time "correctly." Under other conditions, the two will be at variance with one
another. Yet it is too narrow to view the mechanical measurement of time as its one true
measurement; this may be expressed in many ways, for different purposes. The subject's
"erroneous" estimation of time may have a powerful internal validity. We are reminded of
Hans Castorp's words in Mann's Magic Mountain: "But after all, time isn't actual. When it
seems long, then it is long; when it seems short, why, then it is short. But how long, or
how short, it actually is, that nobody knows."
In the Boston experiments, three out of the nine inexperienced users overestimated the
passage of time under the influence
